Sharing the Road with Bicycles and Pedestrians

On October 29, 2008 the Nashville Area MPO staff made a presentation to over 100 attendees of the Tennessee Highway Safety and Incident Management Conference on Sharing the Road with Bicycles and Pedestrians.

This annual conference addresses many important roadway safety issues such as preventing and responding to accidents, collecting accident data and increasing roadway safety.

For the first time, the conference addressed Sharing the Road not only with bicycles and pedestrians but with motorcyclists as well. The standing-room only crowd representing cities from all across the state asked many important questions about bicycle rider safety and laws pertaining to bicycles. A big thank you to TDOT for allowing the MPO to make this important presentation. Click here to view the presentation.
